Course introduction


The Diploma in International Hospitality Management is developed by London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) as a first-year course towards a progression route for students aiming for a higher qualification in the field of hospitality management.

Curriculum Overview

Programme Structure

The Diploma in International Hospitality Management awarded by LSBF aim to focus on the latest development in the hospitality industry.  It will help the students to identify and understand the techniques and theory implied in the hospitality environment.  Students are given emphasis on developing professional hotel competencies such as effective communication skills, good customer service skills, leadership, team work and other relevant professionalism topics related to the industry.

A hospitality course is not entirely complete without the On-the-Job-Training (OJT).  Therefore our philosophy is to integrate classroom studies with supervised practical work experience directly related to academic and career goals.
